WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe School Corporation has selected Deb Carter to replace Christine Cannon as Klondike Middle School's new principal. Cannon is retiring after 25 years in education. Carter is from Laporte where she served as a middle school principal. She says she realizes that this community is tight-knit.
"It's my number one priority, so absolutely. I consider myself a service leader. I am here to support the teachers so the teachers can do their very best job for our students and our students are our children and our grandchildren," said Carter.
Klondike Middle has more than 400 students. Carter says TSC's reputation for excellence attracted her to the position.
